A few weeks ago our church's preschool director called to ask if I would once again donate to their annual fundraiser. I had forgotten all about it, but said that I would be happy to do so. Then we went birding, and it slipped my mind again. (Hmmmm: maybe I should write these things down?) She called again last week just to remind me (perhaps I have a reputation?), and thankfully she did! I didn't have any silk scarf blanks hanging around and t was too late to order any and get something done, so I opted to tinker with one or more of my 'dogs'. The result is at left.

Since yesterday was a warmish day, I had my studio all opened up (increased ventilation for discharging dyes is very important) and I also cranked up my steamer. I threw in this piece of deconstructed screen printing which I had done several weeks ago. I'm really pleased with how well the color held. I took this photo after steaming and washing - the red is still as vibrant as it was when I first screened it. Don't ask what I will do with it: probably just admire it. I really have a problem with using my fabrics after I create them. I need to work on that!
Hope you made lemonade today too!
